2014 Gérard Raphet Pinot Noir Burgundy Gevrey-Chambertin
Our latest Really Good Stuff" Burgundy cuvée is a village wine just across the road from the Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin, with sumptuous aromas of black plums, cherries, and a prosciutto-like game note. Incredible taste-per-dollar."
Crafting an astounding array of Pinot Noir, Gérard focuses his intensity and brilliant winemaking exclusively on the most fickle of grapes. His longstanding local connections afford him access to choice, old-vine parcels of some of Burgundy’s best known vineyards, a huge advantage for a small producer. The focus and purity that Raphet wines display on the palate are the direct result of these stellar sources. They are regularly critical favorites, so we suggest you get them before the media does.
